Mischa Kuball was born in 1959 in Düsseldorf, where he still lives and works. He is one of Germany’s most outstanding conceptual artists. A creator of elaborate installations, he constructs site-specific works that relate closely to the architecture and public spaces. Fascinated by the phenomenon of light, Kuball builds artistic situations with the use of spotlights, light balls, mirror effect foil and projectors. His works are often cited in the context of Plato’s allegory of the cave with its physical world and the world of ideas, or Kant’s theories that bind light and brightness with morality and ethics. Since 2007, Kuball has been the only person in Germany to hold the title of a professor of public art, conferred at the KHM Kunsthochschule für Medien Köln. He is also associate professor of media art at the Hochschule für Gestaltung / ZKM, Karlsruhe.
The event is organised with the support of Ars Cameralis.
